    I recently tried the Glenkinchie 12 WB [83 points], enjoying its natural yet rough-edged malty style - a soft malt rather like Cardhu. This is a fairly old bottle, circa late 80’s/early ’90’s. 

    N: Malty, honeyed porridge, a little leather, unspecified flora & fauna, malty chocolate>biscuits, miscellaneous larder smells,… Serge’s greasy & fatty as well as walnut skin notes are spot on WF. Its a tad cardboard-y too with a nutty and porridge yeastiness, 
    T: Rather an unsure start but it gathers itself. Winey [cognac/brandy] to a maltiness to honey to porridge - in that order. Its an easy enough malt for me to begin slipping/reflecting on the day. Theres also some smoke/coal/ash? - not sure which, used yet dry jay-cloths, some briny sweetness,…. really a greasy [almost oily] mouthful/feel.
    F: Dried winey-raisins before it becomes rather beer/hops-like with hints of cheap chocolate. Water brings out a sustaining fresher side. Malty/herbal washing up liquid at the death - maybe thats the ‘grease’ association? 
    C: I really don’t mind this style at all. It’s not such a ‘usual’ whisky, but then it is a Lowlander.
    Scores a C
